5 stars "Tripping the world imperial... Leaving the world material"

THE concept album. At the music store, the seller recc me this album, knowing of my musical preferences. So I bought this one, my first album from The Flower Kings. An it surprised me a lot. I admit that it took me more than once to get into Banks Of Eden. But when it starts to make sense, the music becomes amazing. Numbers is the first, the longer and the stronger track. 25 minutes without over the top passages and boring parts. Great songwriting and technic. All the tracks are following the Numbers proposal, and all very well done. The ending track, Rising The Imperial, is a slower song based on the Numbers' main chorus, pretty good. About the bonus disc, nice interview, but the songs are quite the contrary from the album: a shame. Unbearable.

Prog is still alive, and well!!
